Gary A Swaby of TheKoalition.com writes: Top selling UK artist Chipmunk has teamed up with the people at Def Jam Rapstar to look for the UK’s best lyricist. The UK Rhyme Master contest is aimed at young aspiring MC’s at school, to urge them to understand the importance of learning and utilizing the English language. Many schools are already on board and some young people could find the competition being used as part of their lessons. Students are asked to write or rap about something that is important to them or on subjects covered in class.
To celebrate the release of Def Jam Rapstar in the UK I had the opportunity to ask Chipmunk some questions regarding both the contest and Def Jam Rapstar itself. Unfortunately, due to me having to go to the hospital I was unable to catch Chipmunk at the right time, but managed to get someone from the amazing LunchPR team to ask Chipmunk my questions for me on audio. Listen to the interview below, and share your thoughts.
